statsmodels.genmod.families.family.Binomial

class statsmodels.genmod.families.family.Binomial(link=None)[source]

Binomial exponential family distribution.

Parameters
linka link instance, optional

The default link for the Binomial family is the logit link. Available links are logit, probit, cauchy, log, loglog, and cloglog. See statsmodels.genmod.families.links for more information.

Notes

endog for Binomial can be specified in one of three ways: A 1d array of 0 or 1 values, indicating failure or success respectively. A 2d array, with two columns. The first column represents the success count and the second column represents the failure count. A 1d array of proportions, indicating the proportion of successes, with parameter var_weights containing the number of trials for each row.
